Graphics "The Heckler"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
It's been a while since we last heard from Graphics, a UK producer who'd been steadily building an impressive catalog of strong-armed house tunes before we lost track of his actions in the field earlier this year. But as "The Heckler" shows, the budding tunesmith has certainly not lost his step, as the fast-moving, piano-led roller serves as a fine re-introduction to the man's talents. With a few tasteful nods to classic garage and UKG tucked underneath, "The Heckler" wraps intricately layered vocal tweaks around a set of gooey chords that give the tune a dark R&B flavor. Aside from this welcome return by Graphics to the XLR8R Downloads section, the London producer has also released a new—and similarly impressive—VIP mix of his "I Know You're Ready" tune from his 2012 XLR8R podcast, which can be picked up over on the man's Bandcamp.
